Terrible Terrace


The latest from a neighbor of the Cooper Square Hotel who has declared war on the second-floor patio: We saw that the hotels co-owner was sitting on the patio a few feet from our window. We put our speakers at the window. But what to play? The un-coolest thing we could come up with was Roger Miller and Conway Twittys greatest hits. Then we put on this vile, 7-minute comedy routine about a prostitute and a banana. And set it to repeat. [Vanishing New York]
